ROTW: Parents, children, and media
Anyway, on with the show. It's time for the third installment of my\nnew Report of the Week (ROTW) feature. This week's\nreport is from the Kaiser Family\nFoundation:\n
Here's a quote from the report:\n
Most parents aren't very happy with the amount of sex or violence in the\nmedia today. Two-thirds say they are very concerned about the amount of\ninappropriate media content children in this country are exposed to, and many\nbelieve media is a major contributor to young people's violent or sexual\nbehaviors. In fact, a strong majority would support government regulations on\nthe amount of such content during the early evening hours. . . . At the same\ntime, the majority of parents see inappropriate media primarily as someone\nelse's problem: only one in five (20%) say their own children are seeing "a lot"\nof inappropriate content. The proportion of parents who are "very" concerned\nabout their own children's exposure to sex or violence on TV - while still high\n- has declined steadily over the past nine years.
I think the Kaiser Family Foundation has a\nnumber of great reports. If you haven't seen them, also check out their reports\non media in the\nlives of 818 year-olds, how kids' media use\nhelps parents cope, and how Internet filters\naffect the search for online health information.\n

- The first stage is called "demoralization" which takes from 15 to 20 years to achieve.
- It's an all-hands-on-deck moment in the arc of civilization.
